Hannah Karen Suvar. Born April 24, 2008 at 3:32 PM, 6 lbs. 7 oz, 19 inches long. When I first saw her my first thought is that she looks like Owen. They have the same wrinkly forehead :) but she is over a pound smaller. She caught on to nursing quickly and now we just need to teach her the difference between night and day. She slept all day yesterday and literally slept for 1 hour between 10 PM and 8 AM. Owen likes to come over and pat her head and keeps pointing to her and 'talking' in his own language. It's a big adjustment, but a totally different kind from going from none to one. My recovery seems to be going better this time around, too.

final days

so this may be my last post before the baby. just four more days and i head in for my c-section. we've pretty much have things done around the house that we wanted to get done and now i am just ready to move on to the next step - adjusting to 2 kids! i had wanted to get a few pics of owen kissing my belly (i don't think he fully realizes there's a baby in there, he just thinks it's fun to pat because it's so big and 'out there') so here are a few pictures i was able to capture the other evening...

March 08

In the month of March, we were busily trying to get projects done, in preparation of the new baby at the end of April. I was trying to do things that i could still do while a little bit agile, since my ability to move is beginning to decrease as the weeks go by : ) Owen, is still the little busy boy and he is loving that we are able to make it outdoors more (not as much as he would like, but some). Owen received these boots from Grandma Karen for Easter and once he figured out how to walk in them, he has really enjoyed them. When he walks, he looks like a cowboy who just got off his horse - bowlegged and pigeoned toed! We are now down to 2 weeks and 6 days before arrival of Baby #2 - prayers are appreciated!
